I recently had a lovely chat with my friend, neighbour, and yoga teacher Nicole Berns. She invited me as part of a course she’s offering, and I thought I would share the video here with you as well. (Click here to view the video now).
We got riffing on some resonant topics over the course of an hour, while the sunlight wanes… By the end we’re sitting in near darkness, but hopefully the conversation continues to provide some illumination!
Some of the themes we cover –
- The differences (and similarities) between self-regulating and co-regulating emotional unrest in relationships.
- Managing emotional activation/dysregulation in the body.
- The second stage of relationship (the Trouble and Disillusionment stage).
- The intensity of emotional intimacy, and how some people crave it and some people avoid it (and some people don’t know what they’re missing).
- The three main operating systems for human beings (rational, emotional, survival).
- The evolution of marriages and relationships.
- Good and bad types of conflict.
- We also touch on yoga, personal growth edges, chakras, Nicole’s own relationship, and more!
